Self-heating, fast-charging battery for electric vehicles

Self-heating, fast-charging battery for electric vehicles

Jul 5, 2018 United States
Californians do not purchase electric vehicles because they are cool, they buy EVs because they live in a warm climate. Conventional lithium-ion batteries cannot be rapidly charged at temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, but now a team of engineers has created a battery that can self-heat, allowing rapid charging regardless of the outside chill.

Supercapacitor Materials Improvement: Gateway to Multi $ Billion Busin

Supercapacitor Materials Improvement: Gateway to Multi $ Billion Busin

Jun 25, 2018
Supercapacitor materials are rapidly improving by new routes. The active materials are the dominant part of cost and the cause of limitations such as flammability, toxicity, cost, energy density and self- discharge. Currently the active electrodes almost always consist of bulk "hierarchical" carbon with a range of pore sizes, often made the old way from botanical materials.
